GOULD NOT AGREE
Game Slated Between Haskell
and K. U. Declared Off.
Athletic Relations Are Severed
Between the Schools.
OLIVER NOT ELIGIBLE.
Claim by Kansas That the Red
skin Is a Coach.
1 Clause in the Agreement Pro
hibits His Playing.
Lawrence, Kan., Xov. 18. Athletic
relations between Kansas university
and Haskell institute are at an end.
The game scheduled between these In
stitutions for today has been called
off. At a meeting of the athletic board
of the University of Kansas held Fri
day afternoon It was decided to give
Superintendent H. B. Peairs of Haskell
until 5 o'clock to -accede to the de
mands of the board. Mr. Peairs re
fused to agree to keep Oliver out of
the eame as Kansas demanded and
Prof. J. N. "Van der Vries, secretary of
the board, who was empowered to act
for the board, declared as the Fowler
hops blew the hour of 5, "The game
Assistant Coach Oliver, Whose Eligi
bility Caused the Cancellation of the
K. U.-HaskeU Game.
is off. Athletic relations between Kan
sas and Haskell are not worth much
now."
No Compromise.
The athletic board sent a communi
cation to Superintendent Peairs, stat
ing that as they believed Oliver to be a
coach and St. Germame to be Ineligi
ble, In that he had registered at Has
kell after October 1, the board -would
not permit these men to play in the
game against Kansas. The letter
further stated that unless Superintend
ent Peairs agreed to keep Oliver and
St. Germaine out of the game, Kansas
would refuse to play. He was given
until 5 o'clock in the afternoon to
agree to the demands of the Kansas
board.
On receipt of the communication
from Kansas Mr. Peairs immediately
submitted a counter proposition. He
proposed that Haskell appoint a rep
resentative, Kansas do the same, and
these two choose a third, thus forming
a committee which should decide the
question. Kansas refused to consider
the arbitration proposition as there
was not time to properly argue the
question. Mr. Peairs then made a
proposition that Kansas permit Oliver
to play and St. Germaine would be kept
out of the game. Kansas refused to
consider any proposition from Mr.
Peairs. As Secretary "Van der Vrie3
said, "If Mr. Peairs does not agree un
conditionally not to play Oliver and St.
Germaine the game will not be
played."
Cause of Trouble.
The trouble has arisen over the In
terpretation of the contract between
Kansas and Haskell for the annual
game this season. A section of the con
tract reads: "No member of the fac
ulty, coach or assistant coach shall be
allowed to participate in the game."
A separate section is: "No one
shall be permitted to participate in the
game who receives a gift, remunera
tion or pay for his services on the
team."
In these sections lie the trouble over
Oliver. Mr. Peairs understands that
these two sections refer to each other.
He argues that to be a coach, or as
sistant coach, a man must receive pay.
He acknowledges that Oliver has been
doing most of the coaching this year,
but he argues that Oliver is simply a
student who knows more about the
game than the others and he is simply
helping them out. Kansas argues that
Oliver is a coach and therefore plain
ly ineligible under the contract, wheth
er he receives pay for his services or
not.
The St. Germaine trouble Is through
a fault In the making of the contract.
A clause reads: "No one not regularly
enrolled in school prior to September
1. 1905, shall be allowed to play."
Now. it happens that St. Germaine
INTERESTING LOCAL NEWS EVENTS OF THE PAST WEEK AS DEPICTED BY THE

cise of all kinds.
was enrolled at Haskell four years ago,
but has not been In attendance there
for three years. Mr. Peairs goes on the
theory of "once a student, always a
student." Kansas has evidence that St.
Germaine has been in attendance at
Wisconsin university and at Highland
Park college. He played on the High
land Park baseball and football teams
in 1903. Kansas, therefore, contends
that St. Germaine lost his studenthood
in Haskell when he enrolled at High
land Park. He did not enroll at Has
kell this year until after October 1.
"Kansas is unreasonable," said Sup
erintendent Peairs. "The arbitration
proposition that I made them is cer
tainly fair. I was willing to keep St.
Germaine, out of the game because
there is a misunderstanding, but Oliver
is perfectly eligible to play. He Is sim
ply a student who is helping in the
coaching."
"I believe that we had a right to pro
test Oliver and St. Germaine," said
Manager Lansdon last night. "There
is no doubt but that they are ineligi
ble under this contract. I think the
right thing has been done by the board.
Haskell has been having her own way
in football too long. We might as well
stop it right row. As to any more re
lations with Haskell. I will not sche
dule any athletic contest with them. It
lies with the board to formally break
off relations. It is too bad, for we
ought to be friends, but if Haskell acts
unreasonable there is nothing else to
do."
"I guess It was all ror the best." said
Coach Kennedy, "but we all want to
play the Indians. Had they met us
fairly we would have beaten them. As
things stand row Haskell has the best
of us In records. I would have liked to
have straightened things up."
"We fellows surely wanted to play
Haskell, but we would not monkev
with them if they insisted on playing
coaches," said Captain Pooler.
There is a general disappointment
among the students and townspeople.
The Haskell-Kansas game promised to
be a wonder. Haskell and Kansas both
needed the money that would come
from the game. The shares would have
been about $1,000 for each school. The
freshmen will play the sqphomores on
McCook field this afternoon. This game
will practically be a battle between the
freshmen and varsity, as all the so
phomores are from the first team
squad.
KANSAS TEACHERS BEST.
Emporia Normal Defeated Warrens
burg by a Score of 34 to 6.
Emporia, Kan., Nov. 18. The Missouri
Normals scored against Kansas
teachers here Friday afternoon, but were
defeated in a one-sided game by the
score of 34 to 6. The Kansas teachers
outweighed the Missouri team by sev
eral pounds and played a much faster
game. The first touchdown was made
after a few mirreTes of play and from
then to the end of the game the Normals
did not have any trouble in making
gains whenever the ball was in their
possession. Missouri started the game
by trying to gain through the Normal
line and for a few downs made their
gains without trouble. It began to look
as though they would make the game
hard for the Kansas teachers, but once
the Kansas team got the ball they car
ried it for gains at nearly every down.
Toward the close of the game they made
gains of from five to thirty yards on end
runs. The Kansas team also played a
good defensive game.
Missouri made its only score on a
fumble. Hunter picked up the ball and
ran fifty yards for a touchdown and
Stark kicked the goal. This was the

Lanky Bob Will Train at Croll's
Gardens at Alameda.
Jack Will Work at Sheenhan's,
Down on the Beach.
San Francisco, Nov. 18. Articles of
agreement for the Fitzsimmons
O'Brien fight have been drawn up and
signed by the three parties to the con
tract, Eddie Graney, acting for Pro
moter Coffroth, who is still in the east
looking after his moving pictures. The
set of articles signed yesterday is not
the same set to which Fitz attached
his signature in New York.
Under the present agreement Fitz
and O'Brien will fight twenty or more
rounds at Mechanics' pavilion between
December 20 and 31, 1905, a definite
date to be decided by Promoter Cof
froth before December 1. The fight
ers will get 60 per cent of the gross
receipts of which the winner will re
ceive 75 per cent and loser 25 per
cent. Forfeits of $2,500 each are to
be deposited.
Eddie Graney is named as referee
In the articles of agreement. This will
do away with a lot of unnecessary
argument occasioned by the fighters
when they postpone the choice of the
referee until within a few days of the
date of the contest.
Bob Fitzsimmons has made arrange
ments to train at Croll's gardens at
Alameda for his fight with O'Brien.
This was the place where he fitted
himself for his fight with George
Gardner. He could have trained at
other resorts near the city, but he
picked Croll's because of the spacious
gymnasium.
"I want a large place to work in so
the public can come over and see me
box," said Bob. "I don't care to be
cooped up in a cigar box where I can't
have an audience. Reports have been
circulated that I can't train any more
and I am anxious to satisfy the public
that such is not the case."
Billy Delaney sent Fitz word that
he could have the services of Al Kauf
man for sparring partner. Bob will
probably employ the big fellow. He
will also engage a clever middle
weight to spar with him, and this man
will be Harry Foley if he is disen
gaged. Jack O'Brien will train at
Sheenhan's, on the beech, where he
has been since he arrived here.
KELLEY MAKES PROTEST.
St. Paul Baseball Manager Carries His
Case to Court.
Cincinnati, Nov. 18. A legal con
test against a decision of the national
baseball commission was begun in the
.United States district court in this city
when Michael J. Kelley, the rftaager
of the St. Paul American association
team, filed a petition for an injunc
tion against the commission to re
strain it from putting into effect its
decision that he should play with the
St. Louis American League team.
Kelley declared that he was not un
der contract to the St. Paul club and
could not therefore be the subject of
a sale by Owner George Lennon of
that organization. He stated that if
he should, after the decision of the
commission, undertake to play with
any other team than the St. Louis
club he would in effect be blacklisted
and prevented forever from engaging
in baseball as a means of livelihood.
He declared that of the members of
the commission August Hermann and
Ban Johnson, as well as John E.
Bruce, the secretary of the commis
sion, had a pecuniary interest in the
discussion, for which reason these
members of the commission were
prejudiced against him. His request
to the commission that the sale of
himself to the St. Louis club be set
aside had been denied by the commis
sion, which would announce to the
baseball clubs that fact and thereby
prevent him from playing with any
other club.
He therefore asked for an injunction
restrayiing the members of the com
mission from any action whereby any
professional baseball club in the Unit
ed States is prevented from engaging
him as a player for the next season.
A temporary restraining order was is
sued, good until Monday morning
when the case will be taken up for
hearing.
One on Kip Selbach.
Cincinnati, Nov. 18. The En
quirer says: Hugh Fullerton tells one
on Kip Selbach, of Columbus, who
was with the Boston Americans this
season. He says:
"Al Selbach is one of the best fel
lows and one of the best ball players
in the business but he has a weak
ness. He can't get the drives hit over
his head and he knows it. Perhaps
you have noticed what a deep field
he plays. Well, he can come in
faster than any one since Tip O'Neill's
day but he doesn't like to go back.
"One day in New York one of these
'Jones flew, Smith fanned, Brown
same,' newspapers printed a big half
page picture of Selbach, and under
it a story palpably written by some
one who didn't know anything about
it, called 'How to Play Left Field
TUESDAY.
Bill Sapp comes to town with a grip
full of politics.
by Al Selbach,' the player, of course,
not knowing what it said.
"I was coming up the field in the
Polo grounds looking at the pair
when 'Kip' caught a glimpse of his
picture and came trailing along, look
ing over my shoulder, and trying to
read it. He saw the title.
" 'What does that guy say in there?"
he asked.
"Then I proceeded to read making
it up as I went along:
" 'How to play left field by Allen
Selbach. The beginner in left field
should observe, first of all, this most
important rule: Place your back
against the left field bleachers so that
they can't hit the ball over your
head '
" 'Does that guy say that ?' demand
ed Kip. And from his tone of voice
it is well that the writer was not near
just then."
HARD IA'CR FOR ST. MARYS.
Outplayed Doane College Yet Lost by
Score of 23 to 17.
St. Marys, Kan., Nov. 18. In the
most gruelling game ever played on
the St. Marys college campus the local
team was defeated by the heavy team
from Doane college. The St. Marys
team showed its regular form and out
classed the Congregationalists in every
department of the game with the ex
ception of luck, as two touchdowns
and a safety were simply donated to
them.
Coach Quigley did not present his
strongest lineup as was his intention,
as Isenman, the big right guard, was
on the sick list and Monroe, the 'var
sity center, was shifted to right tackle,
and this arrangement being a new one
necessarily weakened the team work
particularly on defense, as Doane
made most of her gains through the
sub-guard, Falkenburg.
Captain Walsh won the toss and
chose the west goal and received the
kick with a series of shift plays which
the Northerners could not solve,
scored a touchdown in three minutes
and duplicated the trick in eight min
utes of play, failing to kick the last
goal. When within five yards of an
other touchdown a fumble gave the
ball to Doane on their own five yard
line and their weight began to tell on
the local team, the Doane team weigh
ing 178 and the Catholics but 159.
The half ended with the score 13 to
11 in favor of Doane, they having
scored a touchdown on an attempted
punt which the St. Marys center,
Burke, passed about five feet above
King's head, the ball rolling behind
the goal line.
In the second half the Catholics
rushed the ball over for another touch
down and Walsh kicked goal and it
was here that the tide of fortune be
gan to go against them. Their fast
playing was blocked by the Doane
team taking out time and running in
substitutes while the St- Marys lineup
remained unchanged. Three times
during this half did the locals lose the
ball on fumbles and let the visitors
gain till within their own five yard line
and each time did they hold and take
the ball on down. Once did the line
give away and block a punt and a
Doane man fell on the ball behind the
goal line, giving them five points, and
again did the Doane team fumble and
the ball rolled over the goal line only
to be downed by a Doane man.
During the game Doane carried the
ball a total of 193 yards and scored 23
points, while St. Marys carried the ball
a total of 496 yards and scored a total
of 17 points. The game while one of
the hardest played on the local grid
iron was in a way orte of the most
spectacular, and the game itself clean
ly played, as but three penalties were
given.
Both teams showed remarkable' form
especially on offense and while Qulg
ley's team was racing, down the field
Coach Fuhrer, of Doane repeatedly re
marked: "Where did that team ever un
earth such a remarkable offence why,
no team could stop them."
The St. Mary's team seems to be in
good spirits after losing the game the
way they did and Coach Quigley is bent
on having his charges in' fine condition
for the heavy Normals who play on the
25th. The St. Mary's college scrubs
play the fast St. John Military academy
here Tuesday for the lnterscholastic
championship of the state.

handily, and Andrew Mack, who won
the mile and forty yards through a
wonderful drive at the start by J.

vorite in the fifth race, was practically
left at the post, and Flammula in the

TO THE PACIFIC COAST.
In a Few Days Young Corbett Will
Move Westward.
New York, Nov. 18. In a few days
"Young Corbett" will leave for San
Francisco for the purpose of getting into
condition for another battle, which will
be fought before the Colma Athletic
club of California the second week in
December. His opponent in this contest
will be Fred Landers, the light weight
of California, who gave Willie Fitz
gerald such a hard battle, but never
theless was knocked out In the twenty
fifth round.
The bout between Corbett and Lan
ders was arranged by Jimmy Coffroth,
who secured Corbett's signature to ar
ticles of agreement after he had re
ceived a telegram from the coast stat
ing that Landers was willing to fight
Corbett and had signed the articles.
Corbett and Landers will engage in a
twenty-five round bout at 133 pounds,
weigh in at the ringside, and will battle,
for 60 per cent of the gross receipts.

Coffroth, who is in town, said that
Jimmy Britt and Young Corbett will
figure in the first contest, and, if possi
ble, he will try to bring Britt and Bat

"If everything goes along the way I
expect," said Coffroth, "Britt and Cor
bett will have it out at Colma next Jan

SCARCITY OF LABOR
Is Affecting Manufacturing In
dustries to a Slight Extent.
fiailway Earnings Show Healthy
Increase Over Last Year.
New York, Nov. 18. R. G. Dunn &
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says:
A temporary flurry in the money mar
ket had little dfeleterious effect in com
mercial channels. Most reports indicate
a further increase in the volume of bus
iness. Orders come forward freely for
distant delivery and buyers experience
much difficulty in making purchases for
quick shipment. Wholesale trade in
holiday goods is now well under way
and retail distribution of seasonable
merchandise responds to the generally
lower temperatures. There is still some
delay in mercantile collections, espec
ially in the south, where cotton is not
being marketed freely and to a less de
gree in grain regions, because traffic
facilities are not adequate, but the ma
jority of reports indicate that payments
are more prompt in spite of the higher
money rates. Manufacturing plants
have scarcely a drawback except scarci
ty of labor in a few instances and small
strikes that interrupt structural work
to some extent. None of these influences
affect any considerable proportion of
the capacity and there are many new
high records of production. This is the
case at pig iron furnaces and coke ovens,
while textile mills and shoe factories
make almost as satisfactory exhibits.
Traffic conditions have improved and
railway earnings for the first week of
November were 4.9 per cent larger than
in the corresponding time last year, while
the official statement of foreign com
merce for the month of October showed
a very large increase in the aggregate
and at this port for the last week ex
ports gained $3,933,028 in comparison
with 1904, while imports decreased $1,
160,047. Increased imports of iron and
steel, especially structural shapes, tes
tified to the current rate of consumption,
as domestic production is undoubtedly
at the maximum.
Hides continue firm, but trading is
restricted by the light offerings of pack
ers, who are sold far ahead, rather than
any lack of demand. Further advances
occurred in foreign dry hides. Trade in
leather is also somewhat less active.
Bradstrcet's.
Bradstreet's says:
Activity is still the keynote of the in
dustrial and commercial situation.
Colder weather and the coming Christ
mas holidays have caused a heavy dis
tribution in practically every section of
the country save in the Northwest,
where the rather high temperatures
and railway congestion prevent the full
est development. Railway earnings are
enormous, but the wide-spread block
ades are assuming a serious phase and
tend to curtail production in some in
dustrial lines. Manufacturing lines are
remarkably active. Outdoor construc
tion work is being conducted on an
enormous scale, and a shortage of labor
is reported from many sections. Real
estate the country over is very brisk.
The outlook for spring trade is very
promising, and in short all advices in

WHAT OF WEI HAI WEI?
Diplomatic Circles Interested in Its
Ultimate Disposition.
Washington, Nov. 18. In diplomatic
circles keen interest Is felt in the ulti
mate disposition of Wei Hal Wei, the
English naval station In China. When
China ceded Port Arthur to Russia for
a term of years it made an agreement
with England ceding Wei Hal Wei for
the same length of time that Port Ar
thur should remain in Russian hands.
Since the Russo-Japanese war Port Ar
thur is no longer a Russian proposition
and the question comes up whether the
agreement made with England still
holds good.
CARTOONIST.
SATURDAY.
The rabbits have Washburn field to
themselves for first time this season.
